This Is How You Could’ve Spotted the Start of Silver’s Price Slide
Setting Elliott wave price targets brings these two advantages

If you're a close observer of the metals market, you know that the price of silver has taken a tumble during the past several days.
Elliott wave analysis was a big help in identifying the price turn, which occurred on Jan. 6.
Indeed, here's a chart and commentary from the Jan. 6 issue of our Monday-Wednesday-Friday U.S. Short Term Update:
[Silver]'s rally to $27.97, this morning's high, completes [the upward wave at two degrees of trend]... Today's high met the $27.88-$28.29 range that was cited in the prior Updates and the Daily Sentiment Index (trade-futures.com) has jumped to 90%. Silver should now be in the early stages of a decline...
Speaking of a target range for prices, here's what the Wall Street classic, Elliott Wave Principle: Key to Market Behavior, had to say:
One advantage of setting a target is that it gives a sort of backdrop against which to monitor the market's actual path. This way, you are alerted quickly when something is wrong and can shift your interpretation to a more appropriate one if the market does not do what you expect. The second advantage of choosing a target well in advance is that it prepares you psychologically for buying when others are selling out in despair, and selling when others are buying confidently in a euphoric environment.
Now, getting back to that Jan. 6 U.S. Short Term Update forecast that "silver should now be in the early stages of a decline," that indeed turned out to be the case.
By the close of trading on Jan. 8, the price of silver had tumbled 12.4% in just three days.
On Jan. 11, our U.S. Short Term Update provided further clarity on the anticipated Elliott wave path of silver prices. Moreover, that issue mentioned a key price level that silver investors need to closely watch.
